What’s in a valentine?

February fourteenth

Chocolate sweets for my love

The scent of roses, so sweet


Red love for my sweet

White, for a love that’s true

Pure hearts anticipating

Not broken and bruised


Or is it just a facade?

With warts for perfect hearts

Red roses withered, dying

Chocolatey lies from the start


The hopeless romantic expects

The cynic rolls his eyes

Lovers have their day

Basking in the tie that binds
